In computing, this term, the Year 6 children have been learning about spreadsheets.

Firstly, the children were introduced to data, the different types and how it can be organised within a spreadsheet. Following this the children learnt to create formulas to use in their spreadsheet using cell references; they identified that changing inputs would change the output of the calculation which was quite impressive. For the final task, the children were given a budget to spend on an end of term party. The children had to plan and calculate the cost of the event using a spreadsheet and choosing what they would like to include in their event. The children really enjoyed using the spreadsheet to calculate and produced something they could relate to.
